DIDEROT, Denis (1713-1784)]. Les Bijoux indiscrets . Au Monomotapa [but Paris, 1748]. The first edition of the first work of fiction by Denis Diderot. It is a licentious romance, in which a thinly-veiled parody of Louis XV is given a magic ring which enables women’s “jewels”—that is, their genitalia—to speak and share their owners’ amorous secrets. A classic of erotic satire which skewers its targets with panache. Cohen-de Ricci 303; Tchemerzine IV:430. Two volumes, 12mo (161 x 97mm). 7 engraved plates (some occasional pale dampstaining in vol. 2). Contemporary French sprinkled calf (skillfully rebacked preserving original spines, morocco lettering-piece on vol. 2 renewed).
